I am so very pleased with the finished calendar, it is just great on so many levels, little pockets big enough to fit four little gifts for four children, lovely bright fabric and the perfect size to hang on a door..
This was my first time at free hand quilting, and I really enjoyed it, but I did learn a thing or two along the way !
* The slower I went on the foot pedal the larger the stitches became, I persume I need to try and keep at a constant pressure which is easier said than done !
* It is very easy to catch your fingers , ouch !, I think that is probably because the darning foot is a bit flatter than other feet..
* Would it have been better to draw the lines on in a disappearing pen ? Mine does look very scribbly, which I don't actually mind, but maybe if I had lines to follow it would be neater ?
Any advice on the above points would be most welcome...
A big thank you to the girls for all their help, I am sure I will have four very happy children come advent xx
